• Senegal

    • Senegal, country in western Africa.
    • Located at the westernmost point of the continent and served by multiple air and maritime travel routes, Senegal is known as the “Gateway to Africa.
    • ” The country lies at an ecological boundary where semiarid grassland, oceanfront, and tropical rainforest converge; this diverse environment has endowed Senegal with a wide variety of plant and animal life.
    • It is from this rich natural heritage that the country’s national symbols were chosen: the baobab tree and the lion.

    Senegal has so much to offer, here are some of the things Senegal is known for.

    • Cap Skirring: Weaving your way via tiny villages to Senegal's best beaches and kicking back for a day of doing absolutely nothing.
    • Saint-Louis: Wandering the cobblestone streets past colourful French colonial buildings in a Unesco World Heritage Site.
    • Dakar: Spending sleepless nights touring the vibrant nightclubs and bars of the capital.
    • Siné-Saloum Delta: Gliding through mangroves in a pirogue (traditional motorised canoe).
    • Île de Gorée: Contemplating history at Maison des Esclaves and browsing the handiwork of local artists on this peaceful island.
    • Parc National des Oiseaux du Djoudj: Spotting flamingos, black-crowned night herons and dozens of other bird species.
    • Casamance: Exploring a lush, tropical island or sandy shore.
